    TSA pat-down leaves traveler covered in urine

    Nov 21, 2010

    A retired special education teacher on his way to a wedding in Orlando, Fla., said he was left humiliated, crying and covered with his own urine after an enhanced pat-down by TSA officers recently at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

    “I was absolutely humiliated, I couldn’t even speak,” said Thomas D. “Tom” Sawyer, 61, of Lansing, Mich.

    Sawyer is a bladder cancer survivor who now wears a urostomy bag, which collects his urine from a stoma, or opening in his stomach. *“I have to wear special clothes and in order to mount the bag I have to seal a wafer to my stomach and then attach the bag. If the seal is broken, urine can leak all over my body and clothes.”

    On Nov. 7, Sawyer said he went through the security scanner at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. “Evidently the scanner picked up on my urostomy bag, because I was chosen for a pat-down procedure.”

    Due to his medical condition, Sawyer asked to be screened in private. “One officer looked at another, rolled his eyes and said that they really didn’t have any place to take me,” said Sawyer. “After I said again that I’d like privacy, they took me to an office.”

    Members of Congress Exempt From TSA AIT Full Body Scanners

    Eric Calouro
    Nov 21, 2010

    We’ve tried really hard to stay away from the increasingly popular TSA AIT full body scanners topic, and for a good reason. Personally, I don’t mind the use of them on myself, but I can see why many folks feel like it’s a violation of their privacy. To a certain extent it is.

    What’s motivating me to publish this post is the fact that you ought to know why this topic isn’t resonating as much as we would like it to with Congressional members. So, why isn’t it a big issue with our Congressmen and Congresswomen? Could it be the fact that they’re, say, exempt from TSA screening? You betcha.

    See, some members of Congress fly to and from Washington on military jets. The fact that they may not be checked for weapons here is understandable, given they’re not traveling with civilian passengers, but other members of Congress often travel commercially.

    Case in point: newly-appointed Speaker of the House John Boehner. The man often travels domestically with other passengers, but gets to bypass TSA security and go directly to the gate. Sure, the man likely isn’t planning to cause harm, but still, should he not be expected to endure the checks the rest of us must?

    Head of the Republican party Michael Steel confirmed that Congress members are, in fact, exempt from security screening.

    Just wonderful.

    T.S.A. Grants Airline Pilots an Exception to Screenings

    NY Times
    Nov 21, 2010

    WASHINGTON — At least one group of air travelers will get a break from the body scans and pat-downs that have provoked a national outcry.

    On Friday, the Transportation Security Administration announced that it would let uniformed airline pilots skip the screenings, reversing an earlier policy that everyone had to go through the screenings as part of the agency’s efforts to prevent terrorist attacks. Pilots who are traveling out of uniform or not on official business will still be subject to searches, the agency said.

    The full-body scans and pat-downs being performed at a number of airports have angered travelers, many of whom said the searches were invasive and likened them to virtual strip searches. Passengers have also raised concerns about the long-term effect of radiation exposure from airport scanners.

    The agency said pilots would still have to pass through a metal detector at airport checkpoints and present two photo identifications that would be verified against a flight crew database.

    “John King, USA” , CNN
    Congressman Ron Paul faces off against Fran Townsend, CNN National Security Analyst and former Homeland Security Advisor to the post-9/11 Bush Whitehouse. Paul argues against the current TSA airport security measures as being invasive and a broad government overreach. Townsend holds that it is a necessary policy for upholding safety in the face of terrorism.

    On Nov. 17, 2010 Congressman Ron Paul presented a bill on the House floor in an attempt to curb the invasiveness of TSA search requirements.

    TSA Warns Travelers May Be Arrested, Detained, and Fined for Refusing Search

    Kurt Nimmo
    November 21, 2010

    * * * You will not be allowed to leave an airport until the government forces you to answer questions about why you refuse to have your genitalia groped.</p> * * *In response to growing outrage over naked body scanners and intrusive pat down searches of the private parts of air travelers, the TSA is warning Americans that they may be arrested and fined $11,000 if they refuse to cooperate with the agency’s invasive and humiliating techniques.

    The TSA warns that any “would-be commercial airline passenger” who enters an airport checkpoint and refuses to be subjected to “the method of inspection designated by the TSA will not be allowed to fly and also will not be permitted to simply leave the airport” (emphasis added).

    The TSA will work with local police in order to make sure the person remains on the premises and answers questions. “Anyone refusing faces fines up to $11,000 and possible arrest,” reports the Palm Beach Post.

    “Once a person submits to the screening process, they can not just decide to leave that process,” Sari Koshetz, regional TSA spokesperson, told the Florida newspaper. The policy includes people who decide not to fly.

    Teri Barbera, a spokesperson for the Palm Beach Sheriff’s office, said local police would assist the TSA in preventing people from leaving the airport. “We will handle each incident on a case-by-case basis,” said Barbera. “The deputies will do it at the airport just as they would do it anywhere else.”

    On Wednesday, TSA boss John S. Pistole testified before Congress on the controversy brewing over the fact airports have become areas where the Bill of Rights no longer applies. Pistole said the TSA will enforce the new policies despite complaints that the search methods are too invasive and a violation of the Fourth Amendment.

    Senator John Ensign, a Nevada Republican, asked Pistole about groups that objected to all forms of bodily search on religious grounds. “While we respect that person’s beliefs, that person’s not going to get on an airplane,” said the TSA boss.

    Now the TSA has announced it will also enlist local police to detain people who refuse dangerous naked body scans and molestation of their private parts.

    In addition to not being permitted to board a commercial plane, they will also be interrogated by agents of the federal government. If not cleared by government bureaucrats, they will presumably be arrested and charged with a crime and fined $11,000.

    Airport Director Wants Private Company To Take Over Security

    Nov 21, 2010

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — After recent controversy surrounding the Transportation Security Administration’s security screenings, the director of Charlotte’s airport said he wants a private company to take over the job.

    Federal law allows airports to replace TSA agents with private security guards. Right now, 17 airports across the country do this, and the Orlando Sanford Airport in Florida plans to be the 18th in January.

    Charlotte Douglas International Airport Director Jerry Orr said he’s wanted a private firm to do security screenings since 2001, when the TSA was created. He named a couple of reasons for that: First, a private firm would be more economical.

    “The joke in the industry is TSA stands for Thousands Standing Around,” Orr said.

    Young Boy Strip Searched by TSA

    Sunday, November 21, 2010

    Let’s get the facts straight first. Before the video started the boy went through a metal detector and didn’t set it off but was selected for a pat down. The boy was shy so the TSA couldn’t complete the full pat on the young boy. The father tried several times to just hold the boys arms out for the TSA agent but I guess it didn’t end up being enough for the guy. I was about 30 ft away so I couldn’t hear their conversation if there was any. The enraged father pulled his son shirt off and gave it to the TSA agent to search, thats when this video begins.

    $11,000 Fine, Arrest Possible for Some who Refuse Airport Scans and Pat Downs

    11-21-2010 04:45 AM

    'If you don't want to pass through an airport scanner that allows security agents to see an image of your naked body or to undergo the alternative, a thorough manual search, you may have to find another way to travel this holiday season.

    The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is warning that any would-be commercial airline passenger who enters an airport checkpoint and then refuses to undergo the method of inspection designated by TSA will not be allowed to fly and also will not be permitted to simply leave the airport.

    That person will have to remain on the premises to be questioned by the TSA and possibly by local law enforcement. Anyone refusing faces fines up to $11,000 and possible arrest. "Once a person submits to the screening process, they can not just decide to leave that process," says Sari Koshetz, regional TSA spokesperson, based in Miami.'

    Gun crusader strips down in front of TSA, hauled out of San Diego airport

    Robert J. Hawkins
    Sign On San Diego
    Nov 22, 2010*

    San Diego open-carry gun crusader Sam Wolanyk has taken off time from packing heat to packing, well, not much at all apparently.

    Wolanyk entered San Diego International Airport on Friday for a trip to Barbados with a companion and declined to go through the full-body scanner. As anyone who has been following the story of Oceanside’s John Tyner knows, that can trigger the controversial full-body pat-down by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers.

    Rather than a pat-down, Wolanyk decided to strip down — to his shorts, actually Calvin Klein bicycle-like shorts, according to his lawyer, Jason Davis of Orange County.

    “It was obvious that my underwear left nothing to the imagination,” Wolanyk has told one media source, examiner.com.

    Councilman wants to replace TSA in Colorado Springs

    9 News.com
    Nov 22, 2010

    COLORADO SPRINGS – A city councilman wants to investigate options for using non-Transportation Security Administration security screeners at the Colorado Springs Airport (COS).

    City Councilman for Colorado Springs Sean Page plans to ask COS Director Mark Earle on Monday to report back on options of using non-TSA screens at the airport.

    “Airports have the options of using non-TSA personnel to perform these functions,” Paige said in a news release. “Given the growing public frustration with federal screeners, I think Colorado Springs ought to seriously study the pros and cons of replacing TSA at our airport. I’m not supportive of any change that would in any way jeopardize passenger safety, obviously. But if we can get the same or better security with more people-friendly service, and less TSA attitude, I think we should consider replacing TSA. Other airports have done it, or are thinking of doing it, and I believe we should too.”
